Introducing Stanislas Piechaczek

Wednesday, March 22, 2017



We are thrilled to introduce and welcome a new artist to the
Fenton & Fenton family, Stan Piechaczek. French born, Stan is new to the Australian art scene.
We are loving his colourful, abstract works, inspired by all that surrounds him.

Stanislas is a French born painter currently residing in Australia. He creates colourful abstract worlds occupied by objects and characters. His work is created by a complex depth of layers of acrylic and pastel.

Stan continues to experiment with his art from which he draws much pleasure and his style evolves to reflect himself as he is inspired by all that surrounds him, his life and his journey. Stan has participated in numerous solo exhibitions in Australia and was recently selected as a finalist for the Clayton Utz Art Award.

We chatted to Stan to tell us a bit more about himself and share some of his vibrant photos of his daily life. 

 

Can you give me a short intro on yourself ?

I’m a French born painter currently living in the Whitsundays, Queensland. I grew up in the Centre region of France and then moved to Biarritz on South West coast. I came to Australia 4 years ago on a surfing trip with a bunch of mates. While travelling through Noosa I met my Fiancé and decided to make Australia my home. 




Describe your art and why you became an artist?

I paint colourful worlds complete with distorted objects and characters. I love playing with my thoughts and bringing them to life using paint. I have always loved experimenting with art and have been exposed to creative environments from a young age, as my mum is also an artist.



What is your inspiration?

I draw inspiration from everything that surrounds me and my paintings are the projections of my feelings. I am also inspired a lot by musical artists. Their rhythms, lyrics and visual performances often inspire my choice of colours and the composition of my paintings.



Name something you love and why?

I have always loved and will always love the ocean. It brings me an incredible feeling. It's such a powerful energy and I can never be far from it for too long.

What makes you happy?
Love.

Say Hello to Natures Neutral

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

When Pantone announced the colour of the year as ‘Greenery’, we started thinking about the multitude of hues to introduce into the interiors we style. From dramatic shades like emerald, peacock and tropical greens to the more muted hues of olive, seafoam or mint, there are plenty of ways to embrace Greenery within your interiors.

It’s no secret that we love colour at Fenton & Fenton, and believe it has the power to transform a space. Our friends at Haymes Paint feel much the same way too, so here we share some go to shades to bring nature’s neutral into your home.


1/ Smoky tones with ‘Spruce’ by Haymes Paint



2/ Tone on tone with ‘Foam Forest’ by Haymes Paint



3/ Dark & Dramatic with ‘Murphy’s Run’ by Haymes Paint



4/ Fresh and minty with ‘Jade Cream’ by Haymes Paint

REFLECTIONS ON SUMMER

Thursday, March 02, 2017



Even though summer is officially over it doesn’t mean that alfresco entertaining should come to an end. With Autumn upon us, we’re all about maximising time outside whilst we still can.

Last weekend, Domain’s New Living magazine shared some tips on Alfreso Entertaining, featuring this sweet little courtyard styled by us and Lucy’s advice on introducing colour into an outdoor space.





INTRODUCING COLOUR INTO AN OUTDOOR SPACE

At Fenton & Fenton we believe that sunny days call for colourful outdoor entertaining. And, introducing colour into an outdoor space is one of the easiest ways to bring a garden to life and create a welcoming retreat for family and friends.

/ Textiles are the simplest way to inject a bit of colour and personality into an outdoor space.
/ Bold-hued furniture and lively accessories get the Fenton & Fenton tick and add a bit of magic to almost any garden.
/ Rugs aren’t just for indoors. Colourful, patterned rugs not only add interest but also anchor an entertaining space.
/ Above, a single colour accent in vibrant shades of blue allows the space to feel cohesive, welcoming and guest-ready!
